How to Read the Service Delivery Grid on your IEP, Type of Service
The second column on the Service Delivery Grid of the IEP is Type of Service.
This is what it sounds like. It lists the subject area that will be added or modified for your child’s particular needs. The child in the photo has counseling, speech/language, reading and academic support.
Remember that the Service Delivery Grid is divided into:
A Grid – Consultation Direct Service
B Grid – Special Education and Related Service in General Education Classroom, and
C Grid – Special Education and Related Services in Other Settings?
Each grid has a Type of Service.
So if your child has English Language Arts in a general education classroom that has a special educator as a co-teacher, English Language Arts will be on the B Grid.
On the other hand, if your child has English Language Arts in a smaller classroom with only students who have a small ELA class on their Individual Education Plans, then English Language Arts will be on the C Grid.
You’ll notice that Type of Service is not just for academics. It is also for counseling, speech, occupational therapy, and other areas of need that are identified in the IEP.
Again, remember that for an item to be on the Service Delivery Grid, it must have a goal. If it has a goal, it needs to have data backing up that goal.
